One Design, Two Budgets:
Global Chic Bedroom

I think you know the drill by now: I give you one look and two drastically different budgets. Today's room is for the well-traveled, with a mix of cultures, super saturated colors, lots of texture and carved wood. The price, and its less expensive counterpoint, is next:

1. French Bamboo Bed from Vintage & Modern; $1500
2. Pagoda Lantern from Charles Edwards; $7400
3. Indigo Quilt from John Robshaw; $495
4. Clint Iron End Table from Arteriors; $789
5. Hmong Textile Pillow from One Kings Lane; $265
6. Color Reform Rug from ABC Carpet & Home; $2900

This one is definitely spend-y at $13,349. 

Now if you don't have time or money to travel the world, or can't shop the high-end stores, you can at least visit this global room's cheaper cousin. It comes in at $2349.

1. Palm Bay Poster Bed from Bellacor; $790, or Headboard; $409
2. Pagoda Lantern from Shades of Light; $265
3. Indigo Duvet Cover from PB Teen; $110
4. Pewter Metal Accent Stool from World Market; on sale for $14.99
5. Hmong Pillow from Etsy; $45
6. Overdyed Rug from HD Buttercup; $1395

I'll end this with my usual refrain. If you can't afford either of these two looks, then you can spend more time (versus money) shopping sales, looking in dark corners of thrift stores, antique malls, and estate sales, or diving headlong into eBay. I believe in you! For example, a bed very similar to the one above sold at auction in Houston this past October, for $225.  

But, as always, if you find something similar to the items above, for a better price, share the information by linking to it in the comments below. People will love you forever.
